William Dickinson after Henry Bunbury

The Country Club

20½ x 16½ inches

William Dickinson was born in London in 1746 and was awarded a premium at the Society of Arts in 1767, by which time he had begun engraving in mezzotint. His early work comprised mostly caricatures and portraits. In 1778 he embarked upon a partnership with Thomas Watson and moved to New Bond Street where he continued to produce the finest work and also developed into stipple engraving that was becoming fashionable at the time. After the death of Watson, Dickinson appears to have concentrated on printselling and he eventually emigrated to Paris where he died in 1823.
